Oh I remember her performance from Selector Infected Wixoss. Not bad actually so I think this is going to work out well.

While I love harems, it's the English title that has me sold even more to watch this series.

Not especially interested in the show, but I'm a fan of Kanon so I'll probably pick up the single.

Eh, might be skipping this one. As much as I like MMORPGs and cute girls, harems just aren't the thing for me me anymore.

Finished the first volume of the light novel not too long ago. It definitely has some potential. So I'll be watching when the anime premieres.

But it's not a MMORPGs lol Only thing close with that is the way they do their experience other than that it's more like a medieval fantasy style anime. Also it's not even that huge of a harem in all reality there are about 3 main girl/ villain that have a thing for him slightly 4. Hell it's no where near that center point of the story either and really isn't that hugely focused on (if they keep to how the novel does it that is)

The dungeon aspect of it really makes it feel similar to an RPG, and that's one of the genres I like the most. Also, 3 girls is enough to call it a harem. My problem with this is that it doesn't sound very exciting. You have dungeons sure, but all the facts lead me to believe this will be some kind of slice of life-ish show. Even the title tells us that it's probably going to be about a guy picking up girls in dungeons. Action is not very heavily focused on. Bell seems like an ok guy, but I just don't know if he's interesting enough to carry me through the show.

Well to be fair it's not really a slice-of-life type of series. There's a good chunk of action inside the dungeons (in the first novel at least) and I would say the focus of the series is mostly on Bell's growth as an "adventurer" than his relationship with the various girls in his life (though they all play a part in some form or fashion). There is quite a bit of world building, but it's not as heavily involved as for example, Log Horizon (at least not in this stage). I'm sure the title was just something to grab reader's attention, since most of the time Bell is only thinking of one girl as opposed to many.

Hm, I guess I will give this a try then. Last point is, are there going to be any other male characters that are significant (keyword) in this?

As far as the first novel goes there is only one who is somewhat important. He's a head of one of the Familias (the series equivalents to guilds) and gives Bell potions and stuff. I don't know if more male characters get introduced in the later novels, but I would assume so.
